About this title

Synopsis:

Matt Wagner's award-winning comics series takes on new life as an illustrated prose novel, written by acclaimed wordsmith Greg Rucka, renowned for his popular crime novels featuring detective Atticus Kodiak (Keeper, Finder, Smoker). The ranks of Grendel warriors have now disintegrated into leaderless anarchy, but a savior exists, and one lone Grendel seeks the key to restoring the empire--and she won't take no for an answer. Writer Greg Rucka (Whiteout) tells this compelling story of Susan Veraghen's search for Grendel-Prime. With 50 striking pen-and-ink illustrations and a stunning cover painting by Grendel creator Matt Wagner, Grendel: Past Prime is fast-paced, hard-edged adventure laced with thematic depth and visual firepower.

Review:

Crime writer Greg Rucka expands the Grendel mythos a step farther in Grendel: Past Prime, a short novel with more than 80 illustrations by Matt Wagner. It follows the sordid and brutal adventures of Susan, a young veteran of the future Grendel Wars, as she finds purpose in finding and aiding the cyborg savior of her kind. The story moves quickly, but though the intricate, soap-opera-like details aren't quite overwhelming, fans of the series will have a much easier time of it. Nobility, honor, and extreme violence are the themes Rucka chooses to explore, and they serve to light a dim view of the future. --Rob Lightner
